POSSIBLE SYSTEMSSTILL I COULD HAVE DONE 
systemsStill I could have done this Didn t change me but ather confirmed me even when White disagrees I admire his courage to write like this tho And there s some nice moves in there An aesthetic pleasure perhaps This is a very adical book in which Curtis White offers a deep criticism of our way of life and the way we approach life and the world He sees history as being dominated by the capitalist ethos and scientific logic Smart funny and fresh The Barbaric Heart argues that the present environmental crisis will not be esolved by the same forms. ,
